      3 facing charges in threats to Eau Claire High School

      School officials called authorities and cancelled classes twice after bomb threats and fake bombs were found at the school last fall and earlier this year.

      COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Three people have been charged in connection with a string of bomb threats at a Columbia high school.

      U.S. Attorney Bill Nettles said Tuesday 21-year-old Sidney L. Myers of Eastover is charged with calling in a bomb threat at Eau Claire High School in November. He is also facing child pornography charges.

      One juvenile is charged with calling in bomb threats and making fake explosives. Another is facing a charge of lying to police.

      Myers is being held on $25,000 bond. The minors' names have not been released, and it wasn't known if any of the three had attorneys.
